Because health is the real wealth…

It was Mahatma Ghandi who said

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver

And someone who definitely agrees with those words is Calverton-based fitness coach Julie Rose, who joins June on Girls Around Town this Sunday.

Julie will be on the phone to the studio in the second hour of the show to describe how the personal training sessions, classes and courses offered by Rosefit help people achieve their fitness goals…

Not just through exercise but through healthy eating too!

After several months running the sessions online, as restrictions continue to ease she’s looking forward to getting back to face-to-face training with clients both old and new – whether they’ve been thinking about starting a fitness regime and need a place to begin or they’re seasoned exercisers who want to give something new a try,

On the healthy eating side, if like June you’re a bit of a list-maker you’ll find what Julie has to say about meal planning particularly interesting too.

Every Sunday morning without fail (except this Sunday of course, when she’ll be too busy chatting to June and will have to postpone it till later in the day!) she gets to work picking and prepping her evening meals for the coming week.

Make sure you’re tuned to 107.8FM or listening online from just after 11.10am when she’ll be sharing her top tips for what she calls Food Prep Sunday, along with a couple of changes you can make to what you eat that will help you get back in shape. Just easy tweaks, nothing too dramatic…

As Julie says, remember that small hinges swinge BIG doors!!

Have a heart

Did you hear Phil talking to Lucy Millard a couple of weeks ago about a major new fundraising campaign that’s just been launched by one of the best known – and best loved – charities based here in Newark?

If you missed it, don’t worry – her colleague Katherine Wright will be on the phone next weekend, this time to June on Girls Around Town, explaining just how you can keep Beaumond House in your heart…

As part of the campaign, Kat and the team will be working hard over the coming months to fill the hospice garden with little blue hearts.

Made by potter Karen Chesney of Norwell, they’ll be mounted on steel stems and put on display in the garden. Each heart will carry the name of the loved one being remembered, just like the one in the picture of four-year old Evie above, dedicated to the hospice’s former director John Oldham.

Their aim is to have 1,000 hearts in the garden by the autumn, after which they can be collected by the donors to keep, and the first orders have already started to arrive.

Make sure you’re tuned to 107.8FM or listening online from just after 11.10am next Sunday to find out how the campaign will help Beaumond House continue to care for more than 550 patients and their families every year…

And how you can support them in their work if you have a heart dedicated to the memory of someone special in your life.

Returning to the office well

A few more top tips for you on Girls Around Town on Sunday

And this time it’s the familiar voice of Rosalyn Palmer you’ll be listening to – and learning from!

Wellbeing guru and therapist Ros will be back on air in the second hour of the show, sharing a few ways to make easing yourself back into the office a little bit less difficult, after so many months spent running your own business or working for someone else’s from home.

Based on a recent article written for the Hays website, those top tips of hers – there are five of them in all – are designed to make getting back to ‘normal’ as stress-free as possible, suggesting what you should be doing and, just as importantly, what you shouldn’t!

“As human beings, wired by the primeval part of our brains for survival, we have a negativity bias that keeps us on high alert for what is wrong (or a threat) and we seek comfort in what is familiar,” says Ros.

“Over the last year we, as an adaptive species, have made the unfamiliar (lockdown and working from home for many) familiar. So now, the reverse is true and what was once commonplace will feel strange and possibly a threat.”

Make sure you put on your Sunday best this weekend to hear what Ros has to say when she’s on the phone to June from 11.10am

Just tune in to 107.8FM, listen online or head over to the free Radio Newark apps and join them both to find out how her words of wisdom can help you return to the office well!
